What is it?

A Journal Voucher (JV) is an accounting term that describes a transaction used for recording financial activity.

Why is it important?

Administrators at the University can create their own journal request through the Journal Voucher application in FAST.  A journal can be used to correct errors. For example, an item charged to the wrong department or account.  A JV must include a debit and a credit, so that it is balanced, and a description with enough detail so that when you are looking at that journal at a later date, it is clear what the journal relates to.  Appropriate, supporting documentation can be attached to the JV when submitted for approval.

Where do I find more information?

Details on how to complete a journal voucher can be found at Journal Vouchers.

For access to the JV application contact Financial Services.
